2013 Challange - Edited Boxing Day

Post by Fighting Gopher » Sun Dec 23, 2012 5:43 pm

So, whose up for a little challange for 2013. I'm thinking the following;

3000 points Fantasy or 40K
100 points Warmachine/Hordes
3000 points Flames of War

Picking only one for the year of course, but I'm thinking painting one group of it for the year would be a challange for some people. someone like me, works 60+ hours a week and family it's hard to get time to paint, so I need a little challange for myself. Anyone feel like joining in the fun?

Submissions cannot start until January 1st, 2013. Also, Please post your lists on this section so everyone can see what you are doing. On January 1st, I will post a new topic for January's progress for all of those entered.

The lists so far;
Fighting Gopher - Ogre Kingdoms (Also my WIP)
sonofkitrinos - Skaven
meisenheimernicholas - 1/2 Imperial Fists, 1/2 Nids and Eldar
Nappen (Variety of Armies Warmachine/Hordes)
Switchblade (2000 points) -
SpartanMyth - Chaos
Marit Lage - Chaos Marines
Pheonix - 3000 points German FoW

Down! We should also have a monthly submission thread. This is a great motivator to get my skaven done.

Well Loota, we will still let you participate and you can be like Shadow and do a lower amount if you would like. You have to do monthly submission during none school time though to keep it fair (If you agree that is, open to ideas though).

Oh, I think the 3000 can include upgrades etc. I think we should make our lists though and show everyone what we are trying to accomplish.

We could make it like a quarterly check in kind of deal. That would coincide nicely with school no? March, June, September, Dec?

I can probably do like 1.5-2k as well of 40k, cuz fantasy would mean around... 400 models x.x

I would be down for 3k of 40k or 100 points of WarMachine.

Do they all have to be from the same army? For example with WM I am doing four small armies for the kids and I to fight with-no one has one of their own at this point.

I'm all for splitting it up between multiple forces. It allows more people to join. Especially if you already have an army or two and want to expand to them etc....

Also, I'm thinking we make a student section and a non-student section. This way the students can operate in different as they will have different time constraints unlike the rest of us.
